Lego Fortnite allows you to build campfires and venture out into Lava caves, raising the question of whether your character can catch fire from these potential hazards.
If you wish to protect yourself from intense heat, Snow Berries are the main resources you need to look for.

Fortnite’s new Lego game mode has seen millions of players jumping in to experience its survival world. The game allows players to build different Lego structures by gathering resources that can be found exploring various biomes. One of the first challenges you face in its hostile world is to build a campfire to keep yourself warm. However, as you keep venturing out, you will also encounter regions where you will come across Lava and other fire hazards, prompting the question of whether you can catch a fire in Lego Fortnite. 

Can You Get Incinerated in Lego Fortnite?

Thankfully, players who accidentally step on their campfires will not set themselves ablaze and it will not affect your health in any way. It only serves as a survival item to help you stay warm when it gets cold, or if it is raining outside. It can also be used to light up darker areas, besides torches.

However, if you accidentally step into Lava while venturing through Lava caves, you will take damage as long as you are standing on it. Although it does not do persistent damage and light you up on fire, you will see a slight decrease in your health bar.

While fire does not seem to be much of a direct threat in the game, it can affect you in other ways as you progress through Lego Fortnite. You will have a temperature gauge of sorts underneath your player icon on the top right of your screen, which indicates how cold or hot you are feeling. Although you will not get incinerated, you will still suffer heat damage from changing temperatures and dynamic weather patterns.

While Grasslands mostly require you to keep yourself warm, venturing out into other biomes like  Dessert or Dry valleys means you will run into the aforementioned Lava caves that can get blisteringly hot if you stay there for a long time. If you are not careful and you explore these areas without proper supplies, you might burn yourself to death in a few minutes, losing precious loot and resources.

To counter this, you must stock up on Snow Berries which will bring your temperature back to normal, albeit for a short while. If you reach a certain level, you can also create Snowberry Shakes that are much more efficient in comparison.
